This weekend, both Canada and Australia host their National Trampoline, Tumbling and DMT Championships. Some results are available now. When more come in, I’ll pass it on.
Canadian Highlights: Jason Burnett, known for his difficult routines performed a 16.7 to win the Men’s Individual Title at the Canadian National Championships. Karen Cockburn won her 13th National Title for Canada with a total personal best score of 55.625. Canada’s third 2012 Olympian Rosie MacLennan was unable to compete in the Canadian Nationals for the first time in 12 years due to an injury. She has begun training, again, however and will be ready for the Olympics this summer!
